Join Tommy Lasorda @ The Manhattan Beach Pier to Pier Friendship Walk
SKECHERS USA, Inc., a global leader in footwear, announced that it is teaming up with Kids Foot Locker to kick off the third annual SKECHERS Pier to Pier Friendship Walk to raise funds for children with special needs and education on October 30, 2011. The star-studded lineup for this year's festivities include fitness expert Denise Austin as host, and guest speakers Dancing with the Stars host Brooke Burke and legendary Hall of Fame baseball manager Tommy Lasorda.
This year, the SKECHERS Foundation is expecting more than 5,000 people in attendance and anticipating raising more than $500,000 -- thanks to the efforts of our generous sponsors, including the presenting sponsor Kids Foot Locker, our friends in the community, and many other local and national businesses. "We are proud of the amount we have raised this year and the past two years," began Michael Greenberg, president of SKECHERS. "But when you think about all the children in need, it just isn't enough. Working together, we will be able to give more and more children the chance to discover their strengths and passions, build caring relationships, and ultimately succeed." "The SKECHERS Pier to Pier Friendship Walk is one of the greatest projects I have ever been involved with," stated Tommy Lasorda. "I hope we get more people involved because there is not much more rewarding than doing something for the community. We need more people."
